Thank you for your interest in the Summer Chemistry Lab Camp! These lab sessions will be
designed to supplement a standard introductory chemistry course. However, if you have not
taken an introductory chemistry course already, you are welcome to join that lab camp. Each day
there will be a brief introduction of the concepts covered in laboratory session before the
experiments are done. Participants will be introduced to practical laboratory techniques and key
instrumental methods utilized in chemical analysis.
Here are some topics that will be explored:
• Electrolytes / Chemical Reactions
• Atomic Spectroscopy / Water Analysis
• Acids & Bases / Titrations
• Energy / Freezing Points
• Lipids / Polymers / Fingerprints
